Sins Of Intimacy - Poem by Jacson Gelato

Those sins of your life
are yours alone,
they will not go with others
they will travel with you alone
and upon your conscience
they will find a place
to nest in silence;
and as you keep walking
some sins will fall like dried leaves
some sins will gather more, like snowfall
and freeze your guilt within.
If you should find yourself
drowning in those sins of love,
ask not for forgiveness
but give to each one
roses and kisses and even
compensate the hurt
you have caused to them,
by returning their love
in some smaller way
if not by greater rewards.
Let your own introspection feel lighter
by gaining speculative forgiveness
as the sins of love
are the most delicate, the most intricate
which occur without any deliberations
when lovers choose to part ways
after sharing intimacy, ecstasy
not expecting their love would ever end
invoking sins of intimacy upon each other
making it impossible to forget
that bond, that union, that friendship
so valuable to memory.
